ambodeThe Lagos State Gov­ernment  yesterday,said that over 282 roads have been rehabilitated in the last six months, just as it assured residents that the ongoing construc­tion across the metropolis will be completed in due course.

General Manager of the Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC), Engr. Ayotunde Sodeinde gave the assurance yester­day while briefing news­men on the work done so far said that the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode’s desire is to see that the roads across the state are motorable.

“We have done 282 roads since June 2015 till date. We have listed an­other 189 roads and any­time from now we would start. We would work every day and night to ensure we make life more comfortable for residents in the state”, he said.

He listed some of the roads completed and fully rehabilitated to include Metal Box Road, Acme Road inward Akilo, Ejigbo-Ikotun road among others while extensive fixing of potholes were also carried out on other roads. He also listed some roads such as Alfa Nla/ Capitol road in Agege, Brown Street in Oshodi, Okota road in Isolo as some of the roads under construction.

“Metal Box Road and Acme Road are special projects, they are not rou­tine projects that we do. The routine projects are like 280. If I start to men­tion all of them, it would take a lot of time. We are doing the second asphalt­ing on Ejigbo, the place is quite motorable now. We had finished that Ikotun Ijegun. Why I said it is 85 percent completed is because of the drainage system”.

Sodeinde said the re­habilitation of these roads has to a large ex­tent reduced the traffic congestion in the last three weeks, saying that the Public Works gangs are on the road day and night to give the roads a facelift.theunion.
